Almost Done

While our strawbale greenhouse workshop ended on October 4, work on the greenhouse has continued almost non-stop. Scott, Bob (one of the workshop participants) and I have doggedly crossed one task after another off the to-do list.

Final coats of plaster including design elements on the north wall, linseed oil on the outer walls, lime wash on interior east and west walls, paint on doors, interior and exterior wood trim, fan cover, fixed windows on south side—all of these have been completed.

I like to say we are almost finished. Scott, the better judge of project timelines, says the yet-to-be-completed awning windows, interior pavers and planting beds and solar fan will take more time to finish than I think. I’m sure he’s right, but, to me, that means we’re almost done!
